The more user data is accumulated, the more accurate the system will become, in line with the AI’s learning function, Fujitsu said.
A trial run of the system will begin as early as this month, with Fujitsu aiming for practical application in fiscal 2019. It will be jointly conducted with EXest, a company based in Shibuya Ward, Tokyo, that operates WOW U, an English-language website that introduces guide services to foreign visitors.
Those using the AI system during the trial will provide answers on seven points, such as their age and the goal of their travel, via the WOW U website. The system will then suggest multiple options from among 280 sightseeing spots from Hokkaido to Okinawa.
The AI will base its analysis on such information as data collected ahead of time by survey from about 1,000 foreign nationals, and the opinions of guides and others nationwide who are registered on the WOW U website.
